Kristen Stewart is set to play Coco Chanel in an upcoming short film.
The film will be premiering on at the 12th annual Métiers d’Arts show in Rome on the 1st December and will be the third mini-film directed by Karl Lagerfeld.
In the film, Stewart will actually be playing an actress, playing Coco Chanel, whilst Geraldine Chaplin (daughter of Charlie) will be playing a middle-aged Coco directing K-Stew in a fictional biopic.
According to Karl Lagerfeld, Stewart’s take on the character of the young actress is apparently “very, very mean”, so we can’t wait to see just how K-Stew plays one of the most iconic women in fashion.
Stewart is certainly no stranger to the fashion house, frequently acting as a muse for the Chanel brand, appearing in a variety of campaigns, and regularly sitting in the front-row of their shows.
Most recently, she was seen gracing the catwalk alongside Julianne Moore in the label’s iconic Grand Palais casino Autumn 2015 couture show.
Lagerfeld’s films in the past have always been exceptionally beautiful.
Last year’s “Reincarnation” short film for the Paris-Salzburg Métiers d’Arts show featured Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams in a fairytale dream sequence, where Pharrell wrote an original song specifically for the film entitled ‘CC the World.’
Other previous short films “The Return” and “Once Upon a Time” featured Geraldine Chaplin and Keira Knightley respectively, in the role of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel.
Unfortunately the film will be debuting behind closed doors at the prestigious, ticketed event, but luckily for us it will be shared online soon after.
